chest pain
We are moving so I have been lifting and moving lots of boxes and furniture. I was taking my baby (30lb 2year old) out of the bath last night. I was walking down the hall and hugged her. I felt something pop in my chest and then had blinding pain. I was able to go down on my knees and lay her down. The pain is bad if I move at all it hurt to take a deep breath. I did heat and wrap last night with 2 Vicodin. Had a really hard time sleeping every time I moved it woke me up. It seems a little better with a wrap today. How do I know if I need to go in? Thanks

I'd go see a doctor if it continues for more than a couple of days, especially the pain upon breathing.  It sounds like a rib injury, but what I'm more concerned about is whether heat is the best thing or ice, and that depends on what's going on.
